Hello everyone,
Ok this might sound crazy, today I weighed in and only lost 1/2 pound thats using some alternative products and tom maybe.....
Here is my thought, I am going on holiday in 2 weeks and hopefully by then will be on phrase 4 so I really want to have a good weigh in for the next 2 weeks I am on phrase 2, but my summer clothes are still a tiny bit has anyone ever cheated say a mild cheat something our body is not use to say a potatoe something carby, then 2moro go back on phrase 1 for a couple days, do you think that will boost my weight loss for next thursday or slow it down more?????

Don't cheat with a carb, if you have to cheat do it with protein, like a shake or extra veggies. You have to understand Ketosis and then you will understand why. It is like falling into a frozen lake, being saved and warmed up and then jumping back into the frozen lake. You are resting your pancreas, don't wake it up, shock it and then shock it by going back to Phase I. If you need to phase off, do it! ( I don't recommend it, it sounds like you are almost there) :)

Yes you are right, thank you I think I needed to hear that......:)
With doing phrase 2 should I only be using 2 protein packs cause sometimes I have 3, I guess that could do it.........thank you again........

Yes, Phase II is 2 packets, but if you are working out you can have an extra non-restricted... Good Luck :)
